Try going to any non-automotive Honda dealer. I get my Honda parts from an industrial rental place that happens to sell comercial Honda lawnmowers.

Re: Honda dealer is a dick. need help.

hahahaha the honda motorcycle dealer here is a dick too!!!!!!!! I looked up the latest honda scoot on the net and they wanted 300 more than msrp and guess what the Yamaha dealer is an even bigger dick, I wanted one of the new vino scooters and I went to his dealership twice, the second time he said he wasnt even going to bother to call around to find one until I gave him 500 bucks, I ended up buying a Hyosung scooter from a local lawnmover shop..... Rog

Oh and bye the way once I told the guys at the mower shop about my experience with the 2 dealers,, they said"you wouldnt believe how many people have come in and told us the same thing, It must be something about motorcycle shops"

Re: Honda dealer is a dick. need help.

Well, I have had GREAT service from our local Honda motorcycle shop, in getting parts for a Hobbit. Try www.worldofpowersports.com to get their number. I've ordered a fuel valve, gaskets, brake shoes, etc. Also, I've seen a site, but never ordered from, called www.partsfish.com that has the PA50 listed - lots of exploded diagrams which are great to figure out what you need, and the part numbers match the Honda database. The prices at World of Power Sports are within a few cents of the partsfish ones, so I just buy locally.

Re: Honda dealer is a dick. need help.

Wouldnt you know it? The honda dealer in my town is a jerk as well. I have a '80 honda passport, and so far the only thing he could find for me is new brakes. He told me that the passport is real popular in Vietnam, and I would have better luck finding parts if I learned Vietnamese and went there myself...basicly told me not to come back because he wouldnt be able to find any parts for me. The yamaha dealer in town laughed in my face when I asked about ordering moped parts from him. And another motorcycle shop (motorcycle accessories) always tries to sell me shit I dont need at a price nobody could afford. The owner there is a real dick, i've talked to him twice, he thinks he is a motorcycle guru, but can never seem to answer a simple question about my mopeds - he tells me to "bring it in, we will fix it for you." In other words, he wont just tell me how to fix something because he can turn a buck off me if I bring it in to be serviced.

But there is one really cool shop in town, competiton cycle. (As a matter of fact, the owner is my neighbor.) They pull flywheels for free and do other odds and ends at no extra cost. Its wierd, 3 out of 4 motorcycle shops are assholes, and the 4th goes out of their way to be nice to me.

Re: I wonder

If those people realize sites like this are a clearing house for the experience of thousands of moped fans.

Sure ot takes a while to get an answer sometimes, but we are more interested in keeping our dinosaurs alive. We will surely smoke out these rats that don't realize the size of this moped movement.

Re: Honda dealer is a dick. need help.

I live in maine, and I've called every place on a list to find a part. I've ordered parts from dealers who were pleasant on the phone...as far away as seattle.

The local honda dealer is a jerk once you mention moped. I had an NC-50, 1978 and I trashed it due to not being able to find carburator parts or replacements..

I loved that little bike. it ran well for a long time.

Re: Honda dealer is a dick. need help.

ps: when i first got my pa50II, i took it to the local honda dealer and they told me with a straight face that they dont work on bikes over 10 years old.... like if i took a 1990 honda crotchrocket in there, they wouldnt work on it.. jerks. oh, then two of the workers there tried to buy it from me.. haha
